My father Robert McCaughey his brother Hughie McCaughey. Their uncles Bobby and Danny Toal. My grandfather Bernard McCaughey and his father et cetera were all dockers. I joined the end of this fine tradition in 1985 when I began work at Barnetts silo on Monday the 14th of January. I left in June 2008. I am proud of my heritage. However I can say this without fail I never had to work or endure the backbreaking and highly dangerous work of my forefathers. I remember my father telling me about bags of asbestos which dockers playfully 🙄 Beat each other with because it was as dusty as flour. He suffered many an injury one losing the tip of a finger at a timber boat caught between the heave cable. How could we ever live up to the legacy of these men. Simple: we can't !.
